4.5 Faculty & Staff Growth

The objective of this section is to determine how many faculty and staff employees will be needed. The following charts identify the number of current staff and faculty and projects their population at the 2010 and 2015 target years.

Faculty and staff requirements for Georgia State University were projected using two units:

  • • Staff Counts (SC), representing total number of employees on payroll. A figure similar to Head Count (HC) as defined by the Council of Educational Facilities Planners International (CEFPI).
  • • Workstation (WS), representing total number of employees occupying a dedicated workstation at one point in time.

The projections below illustrate workstations.
